DESY, with more than 3000 employees at its two locations in Hamburg and Zeuthen, is one of the world's leading research centres.

One of the key projects we are involved in is “EOSC Beyond”, which aims to enhance the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) by offering advanced scientific services accessible to researchers across Europe. This initiative brings together over 30 prestigious European scientific institutions, universities, and SMEs. The overall goal is to redesign EOSC by setting up a network of nodes providing services, resources and data to researchers in Europe.
